HOLESHOT PERFORMANCE. CHAMPIONSHIP VALUE.
This year; we’re happy to announce an extraordinary opportunity for motocross riders: The 2022 Honda CRF450R-S; a new machine built to the proven 2020 CRF450R specs. But here’s the best part: We’re also offering it at a greatly reduced price that’s going to make it one of the best dirtbike deals ever.
The CRF450R-S offers a spectacular list of features; like our balanced twin exhaust for riders who prefer that system. And the Unicam® engine; selectable engine modes; Honda Selectable Torque Control and HRC Launch Control all put this bike right at the front. And if you do your part; it’ll put you there; too.
Features may include:
The CRF450R-S’s Next-Gen twin spar aluminum frame positions the rear shock’s mounting point lower; opening up the airbox area and contributing to a lower center of gravity for more holeshots. The frame geometry also helps improve traction; feeling and steering precision.
We’re talking about a special ECU program here: push the button to select the mode; hold the throttle open; release the clutch; and the CRF450R-S will do the rest; launching you into the first turn with a big advantage. It turns your bike into a holeshot-seeking machine!
Kickstarting? Maybe if you’re riding in the vintage class; but not here. By ditching the kickstarter entirely; our engineers can make the CRF450R-S lighter. Electric starters and lithium-ion batteries are so light now and so good that putting them on a bike like this is a win/win combination. And winning is what a CRF450R-S is all about.
Honda’s Unicam cylinder head combines the best of single- and double-overhead-cam designs. The configuration contributes to a compact engine that saves weight over a comparable dual-overhead-camshaft motor and also permits a narrow included valve angle. This flattens the combustion chamber to facilitate ignition flame propagation; allowing a high compression ratio. Since less space is taken up in the cylinder head; the camshaft sits lower in the head for a more compact engine and a lower center of gravity.
